If you don’t know: #romanceclass is a community of Filipino romance authors writing in English. Most of them take place in the Philippines but can also take place in other parts of the world (amazing!!). I have been such a huge fan of this community and their creations that I couldn’t stop myself of making this list because I know that some people out there are just as excited as I am. Get ready for these 7 upcoming #romanceclass novels to warm your cold heart.
Stealing Luna by Carla de Guzman (Carla is aiming for an April publication)
Cora Justa Dumagat has had enough of the corrupt cats of the council of Cincamerre who only risk people’s lives in exchange for a payday.
She has a plan to get revenge and that is to steal the Juan Luna painting right from under their noses in Barcelona, but the job gets a bit complicated when she is assigned a bodyguard. One she knows very well.
Vlog Like You Love by Clarisse David (Clarisse is also aiming for an April release)
We don’t know much about this book! Clarisse has tweeted a bit about it and she says: “When Bianca’s boyfriend shows up in another vlogger’s My Boyfriend Does My Makeup video, all bets are off the table.”
It’s about vlogging, we can definitely say that much, and we love any type of blogger so this is so amazing already!
